Who We Are

The Compass Association (Compass) leads as a self-regulatory Trade Association representing the interests of ALL providers delivering sport and physical activity in schools and the wider community including private companies, foundations, charities and the public sector.

The aim of Compass is to be the leading authoritative voice of the sport and activity industry to government, local authorities and the public at large. We have created a code of conduct, ensuring Compass members are recognised by a quality assurance seal both as individuals under the CAPRe Register and as businesses under the Compass Cardinus Quality Assurance Scheme.  This quality assurance seal will help parents choose the safest and professional settings for their children to attend.
Compass is governed by a democratically elected Board of Members from the top levels of the industry.
Founding and Corporate Partners have been appointed to promote and shape the sports and physical activity landscape in the UK and they work in close collaboration with the key stakeholders who include the Department of Education, Sport England, Sport Wales, Sports Leaders UK, Sports Coach UK, Association for Physical Education, London Mayor’s Office and the UK Commission for Employment and Skills (UKCES).
